About the awards

The National Student Housing Awards are unique. We don’t take written nominations and there are no ‘expert’ judges.

All our awards are based 100% on direct feedback from tens of thousands of home and international students across the UK.

Universities and private accommodation providers can participate in the Awards free of charge through the National Student Housing Survey.

  • Heidi Fraser-Krauss
    Director of Information Services
    University of York

    It really supports all the hard work we’ve been doing in the team. Knowing that it’s based on what students really want and them telling somebody else that, is just the best. It’s the best way you could get an award.

  • Professor Mark Smith
    Vice-Chancellor
    Lancaster University

    The fact that these awards are based on student feedback is one of the key elements of them… the fact that it’s they who are voting for it makes it all the more meaningful.

  • Professor Petra Wend
    Principle and Vice-Chancellor
    Queen Margaret University

    We’re delighted at Queen Margaret University …It’s entirely based on student feedback and that means it’s truly a recognition of what we have wanted to achieve.
